on families and worried about the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. you know, the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives that are search and rescue teams will be in place, that people are going to get the food, the water, the shelter they need in case of emergency, and that we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track. >> and, of course, the election now, it is tuesday, the election is now one week away. the president has cleared his campaign schedule for tomorrow to deal with the after-effects of sandy. we had originally heard that mitt romney would not be campaigning. now he will be holding an event in ohio, which they are calling storm relief event. i don't have any much further details on that. but, again, obviously this has taken not just a toll in terms of lives, in terms of costs of lost businesses, of the damage that has been done, but there are these huge political implications a week before the election a lot of early

but keep it for oil. he is going to do away with the fuel economy standards that increase the efficiency of the vehicles we drive up to 55 miles per gallon backing out 6 billion met trk tons of co2, back out 3 million barrels of oil per day from the persian gulf, all the oil we import. thek och brothers want romney, and romney has promised, to roll back the fuel economy incentives. it's going to endanger young men and women who have to go to the middle east to import the oil. >> professor, back in the '60s we called such people pigs. they don't care about the planet, don't care about the destruction of war, all they care about is their stuff. and they want more of it. is that what we're talking about, greed? i'm talking about people who won't listen to you or science because they want more stuff? >> listen, chris, i'm not into name calling here. >> well, i am. >> fine, that's your job, not mine. we have a serious job to do. the administration has actually started to put in regulations to reduce emissions. u.s. emissions are actually down modestly. we have a long way to go. we're going to
. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. you know, the election will take care of itself next week. right now our number one priority is to make sure that we are saving lives. >> put that in perspective what we just heard. i mean, give me a real world look at what we just heard. the president of the united states being rewarded from a republic republican, chris christie and i see the president very cool right there. very cool. >> there is always a big point of emphasis, when they recruited fugate to do that and signed off on jeb bush to do this, there was this hangover from katrina going back in the bush administration and there's always been a point of emphasis, if you will, on fema by the obama administration. i think frankly it won't have mattered who came into the presidency in the post katrina world there was going to be an emphasis on fema. you weren't going to let that get politicized. yes, it's a political appointee and you're going to have somebody who came with a background to do this stuff. so i think that they realize that it's a high-wire act,
in there and say, this is a value to the american economy to rebuild that part of the country that's right there ton the water's edge? >> the interesting thing, chris, you're right, my house in ocean city had 10 inches -- 10 feet of water in the basement. fortunately, it didn't go under the house. but the shoreline, a lot of it's gone. and that means a comprehensive effort. we've got to find sand. and interesting, as we dredge eastern ports to get them ready for the big liners that are coming in from the panama canal, that frees up a lot of sand that can be used in rebuilding those beaches. but that's going to take an effort between the army corps of engineers and the states. and that's federal/state, again. so the recovery process depends on federal/state cooperation. and i think we're going to see it. i think new jersey, the governor is intent on bringing new jersey back. mayor bloomberg, who always does the right thing, is intent on bringing new york back. i think you're going to see a great local/state/federal effort to rebuild what's been shattered. it's what americans do best, when w
